A Saturday Vote, oh yeah!
Friday afternoon after my sinus meds let lose of my brain i adventured myself outside about 5:30pm to clean up and feed Fancy. Well it was so nice outside I started grooming her while i let her graze in the backyard. I decided to saddle her and do some ground work and i wanted to sit on her again. So I went to back porch to get my shoes. Fancy stood at the gate until I got back. Since I wasn't sure I still had her attention i got the whip and desensitized her to it and lounged her left and right to make sure she was ready to listen. This only took about 5 times and she showed me she was ready. I stood in the stirrups on each side one at a time and leaned over rubbing her neck and side. Then i tapped her hind end to desensitize her to my foot hitting her and I tapped the saddle all over to. And I mounted and dismounted a few times on each side. I figured since she is very forward I would just sit there until she started to walk. I rocked the saddle a few times to let her know that i move too. Then I waited. And she did walk. I let her walk until she stopped. Then I dismounted and she gave me a horsey neck hug and I hugged her back and gave her tons of rubs and horsey nose kisses because I was so happy. Then I let her eat some more grass. I know this isn't much but for me with her it is. Because she is plenty ready and big enough to carry me as long as i don't gain a lot of weight any time soon,LOL. I am just taking it slow like we have done so much already, i go about it like we are just having fun together and it seems to work with her. I pray she continues to be so good for me. She is not perfect but i can work with her and we somehow being blessed get it done!

Very Merry CHRISTMAS to You!!!
Every good and perfect gift comes from above, from the Father of Lights (Albert Schweitzer)
I know this won't happen, but my impossible CHRISTmas wish this year would be to have a trail ride on Fancy, with all my HorseChannel friends. To my dismay, this isn't happening(i couldn't afford it anyway,LOL), so Fancy and I will leave you a CHRISTmas vote instead

Sorry this is cut and paste but I'm trying to reach as many horses as possible. I will write properly later.

I was wondering if you could do my friends on the Dog Channel a favour? They are running for dog of the month and they need lots more votes to win. Would you go over there and give them a vote today and tomorrow? Their number is 85816. Their names are Little Bit and Paco.

You can log in with your Horse Channel information. Then click on the dog of the day and change the last numbers to 85816.

Thank you so much. Leaving you with a vote and hoping you're having a great weekend.

Come visit me, Prince, Happy Birthday today, Pippin! & Eddie.

His name is RC's Magic Carpet (aka Carpet) because he foundered a few years ago & had a slim chance of surviving. When the vet came to put him down, Carpet was up & running around the arena. "RC" stands for Ridge Creek & they named him Magic Carpet because he survived.

Carpet...that's a werid barn name! But cute and original. It's good to hear that the old guy is still up and giving lessons! Even if it is only walking. He's nice and old. Have a vote from Kansas!
